About Us

Welcome to Orange Home!

I started designing and renovating homes in the early 1990s with a duplex in the Dupont neighborhood of Washington, DC. Since then, it’s been a 19th century row house in Georgetown, and after a move to Miami, several historic properties -- from old Spanish mansions to Bahamian style cottages -- a beach condo and a lake cottage near Asheville, NC. (You can see some of these projects here on my profile.) All of this was in my “spare” time while working in the technology industry in the US, Europe, and Latin America.

Through these experiences, I learned all aspects of the remodeling process and ultimately took full control of my projects. In 2018, I retired from the technology business to dedicate myself to my passion. I started Orange Home Design + Renovation, building on my experience in design, planning and construction to offer full end-to-end service for clients.

I know that a home renovation project can be overwhelming. Design, materials, building plans, permits and construction can be a complex and expensive process, involving interior designers, architects, engineers, permit expediters, general contractors and construction trades. At Orange Home, our mission is to simplify the process by offering a one-stop-shop, managing all aspects of our clients projects, shielding the complexity and keeping costs lower by reducing the amount of people involved. No handoffs from designer to architect to engineer to expediter to contractor.

It’s a different challenge to help others bring their dreams to reality, and I’ve enjoyed it just as much my own projects. If you like what you see, and you’re looking for someone with experience, passion for design, and focus on quality to help you realize your dreams, get in touch for a free home design and planning consultation. Thanks again for stopping by!

Hi I'm Ana!

Throughout my career in real estate, I've had a passion for helping my clients find their dream homes and turn them into reality through remodeling. Like John, I started in the business buying and renovating homes for myself. Eventually I began to help clients do the same.

With years of experience and an eye for design, I specialize in identifying homes with great potential for renovation. I understand that finding the perfect home for remodeling requires more than just finding a good deal. Instead, it takes working closely with my clients to understand their unique needs, tastes, and budgets, and then find good candidate homes with a vision for what it could be.

After the purchase, I work as part of the Orange Home team to transform them into beautiful, customized spaces that my clients will love.

So if you're looking for a partner who can help you find the perfect home for remodeling and guide you through every step of the renovation process, look no further than Orange Home.
